    Dogma in Medieval Jewish Thought: From Maimonides to Abravanel.Menachem Marc Kellner - 1986 - Oxford University Press.
    This study charts the development of creed formulation in Judaism from its inception with Moses Maimonides (1135-1204) to the beginning of the 16th century, when systematic attention to the problem disappeared from the agenda of Jewish intellectuals. Kellner describes, analyzes, and compares the dogmatic systems of Maimonides, Duran, Crescas, Albo, Bibago, Abravanel, and many others, and provides English translations of several previously unexamined or untranslated texts.

  11. Maimonides on Judaism and the Jewish People: Marginalized Peoples and the Problem of Knowledge.Menachem Marc Kellner & Professor Menachem Kellner - 1991 - SUNY Press.
    Maimonides on Judaism and the Jewish People explores Maimonides' philosophical psychology, his ethics, his views on prophecy, providence, and immortality, his understanding of the place of gentiles in the Messianic area, his attitude toward proselytes, his answer to the question, "Who is a Jew?", his conception of the nature of Torah, and his arguments concerning the nature of the Chosen People. With respect to each of these issues, Kellner shows that Maimonides adopted positions that reflected his emphasis on nurture over (...)

    Maimonides on the "Decline of the Generations" and the Nature of Rabbinic Authority.Menachem Marc Kellner - 1996 - SUNY Press.
    Maimonides affirmed, not the superiority of the "moderns" (the scholars of his and subsequent generations) over the "ancients" (the Tannaim and Amoraim, the Rabbis of the Mishnah and Talmud) but the inherent equality of the two. The equality presented here is not equality of halakhic authority, but equality of ability, of essential human characteristics.
